The hero, who claims to be sent by the mage Eldirood, emerges from a cloud and is apprehended by the local law enforcement. However, the conversation is cut short because the nearby village is attacked. When the hero reaches it, everything is already over and the village elder kidnapped. Of course the hero offers to rescue the elder which starts his journey through the land which will lead him to fight a big evil... Aspetra is a Japanese-style RPG. The player spends much time in the wilderness and in dungeons while randomly being attacked by enemies. Then their pictures blend in over the current background image and the player has to fight them in turn-based combat. The available options are attacking with weapons, using an item or run. Eventually the player may also learn how to use magic spells. When the hero is victorious, he receives experience points and eventually a level-up which improve his stats. In towns the hero can either visit an inn for full recovery, talk to the population or visit a shop to buy/sell items and equipment.
